As I mentioned previously, I make something new for dinner every Valentines Day for SpecialK. This year, I had trouble deciding what to make. I finally decided to make something that we had discussed previously, that he was open to trying.
I made us Lasagna! Ok, to be fair, I made us noodle-less lasagna. Served with a small side salad, because every lasagna needs a good side salad. I also made us dessert, because it was Valentines Day. However, the dessert wasn’t chocolate. Do I lose any points?
As soon as I can locate the recipe I used, I will update this post. I made one difference from the recipe. Instead of a meat base, with cheese on top, I layered this lasagna. Oh, and instead of making in a pie plate, I used the same glass loaf pan I used to make lasagna many years ago!
Dessert was buckwheat crepes. I happily found a recipe years ago, which I enjoyed at the time. I could not locate that recipe, so I dug into my gray binder and found Bon Appetites Basic Buckwheat Crepe recipe.
I served the crepes with some cinnamon apple slices I had canned. They were not sweetened, and that was why SpecialK didn’t love the filling. I did put some real dairy whipped cream on top. The crepes, however, were approved. I only made a small amount this time, but will make more in the future.
I have tried to search Amazon to give you a link to this flour, but I can’t find it. It is Anthony’s Organic Buckwheat Flour. It was a very mild flavor and I absolutely recommend it.
Do you have any rituals for Valentines Day?
